i've been in this town for eighteen years and we've had a mission a stall for thirteen years for the region it's a shame to lose a star restaurant but it's a good thing for the industry overall unfortunately we need to focus on employment rather than the. sad but that's the way to. deal with. the united states debate is heating up over a migration initiative aimed at protecting young illegal migrants also known as the dreams donald trump says he's ready to approve or lower on them however. conditions truly should be a goal of love and we can do that but it also has to be a bill where we're able to secure our border drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace so in order to secure it we need
a wall. deferred action for childhood arrivals also known as dhaka is a program created under the obama administration that gives a temporary right to live study and work to those who are legally brought as children to america now u.s. lawmakers have two months to turn daca into law the daca initiative has of late being used by democrats as a tool to accuse trump of violating migrants rights but a recent revelations make it look like the debate is not so much about moral principles but rather about votes and support bases and the media is now sharing a memo written by the former director of communications for hillary clinton's presidential campaign. the fight to protect treatments is not a really a moral imperative it's also a critical component of the democratic party's future and that tural success if democrats didn't try to do everything in their power to defend dream as that would jeopardize democrats tonight says in two thousand and eighteen and beyond political
analyst john had unimpressed by the way the dream is issue is being used to score political points politics has become very cynical in the in the u.s. and you know i think that. it's somewhat of a dirty game no it. looks it would reach very cynical the fact. they have very wealthy interests that rely on a constant flow of cheap labor and also all the legal votes. against any of the reforms that the president trump and the republicans have been pressing for. america's dreamers debate might actually have some residence in scotland where the local parliament is looking into the possibility of granting the right to vote to anyone granted asylum or residency permit it would include a right to participate in local and scottish parliament elections a scottish minister a parliamentary business claim that it's only fair that those who have the right to
live there should have the right to vote and we debate the issue with james dolan from the scottish national party and david copeland from the u.k. independence party. the idea that any country allows people who are not their citizens to vote in any election has this on the head of a totally wrong the scottish national party want to gerrymander the elections they want to give the vote to every tom dick and harry this is all anybody but the english i should think i don't i that goes died out so somebody might call that racist. rumble and run i just heard from david cole bombing and the only person that sounded racist and it was him the fuck interested in the race of people. and if they get the rate then i think it's only appropriate to get rate to have a c. they must have british citizenship all the scottish national politics well scottish not lying about it trying to gerrymander it they'll have anybody in the country that give them a view to give us some explanation of the scope shasta darlington is joining
together so they actually need to be quiet for a moment i would well you should be quiet let me speak i'd let you speak a sensually they don't want anybody who's english voting but anybody else can have a vote no matter where they come from this is on how it all countries normally only allow people to vote in elections who are citizens of that country the ridiculously the coupon continues to see only people we want only to the english the english people who stay here vote consistently or in all sorts of issues the. good the most big deal for them i mean look still be able to vote for whoever they want to vote for that's called democracy that is what you want to do as usual when all else are you going to know that a lot of the scottish scottish soldiers of scottish people were not given the vote if they were not resident in scotland or the referendum this is not that pathetic if the effort by the scottish national party to gerrymander
a future independence vote this is not a game this is about trying to meet scotland the rate sort of country to the people who live in school and will get the opportunity to say what it's a boat well thank you joining us here on this wednesday on r.t.e. international you will buy headlines continue in approximately thirty minutes. i had a great education a good job and a family that loved me. i never had to worry about how i would eat somewhere i would sleep. i'm facing christmas alone out on the streets of london. well you look to be. a cut above the boy you like going to school you know just not in the still give up food for the so.
